This course connects participants to New York City’s roots and reveals the historical interplay of geography, immigration, commerce, architecture and personalities that make the city the amazing place it is today. Discover how the Irish experience in New York City differed from the Italian experience, why buildings took on a particular style, and what a stream and statue have to do with the design of Greenwich Village. Learn how Central Park came about and why African-Americans settled in Harlem. These are among the topics covered in four exceptional walking tours and six lively illustrated talks.
